I love my job and I'm very lucky to be a musician and make a living doing what I love ..... however .... I've been playing clubs, casinos, corporates primarily for the last 15 years and I am in a rut .... what I really want to do is play theatres/ arenas/ stadiums as a sideman for the big name acts.
I guess you have to trust me on this next part .... I'm very good at what I do.... utilities guy (keys, sax, guitar) and a good singer. Pro, easy to get along with, good hygiene, non smoker, non drinker, no hangups, prompt, no criminal record etc.
However - I have one thing going against me - I'm Canadian. I love my country ... however, the "holy grail" for these gigs seems to be in the US - the land of opportunity .... trying to move there is getting increasingly difficult with proper documentation ....
Any advice on my situation?
